welcome to "cbs this morning." norah o'donnell is off. it may be the holiday season, but when it comes to lawmakers in washington, it seems no one is in a giving mood. both sides are dug in and there's little sign of progress from the talks to avoid the fiscal cliff. with just 19 days to go, republican leaders telling members of congress not to make holiday travel plans. and a new poll this morning suggests that most americans want to see a deal, but on the president's terms. the "wall street journal" nbc news poll found more than three-quarters of voters, including 61% of republicans would accept higher taxes on people making more than $250,000 a year. major garrett is at the white house. major, good morning to you. >> reporter: good morning, charlie and gayle. ben bernanke, the chairman of the federal reserve, said anxiety over the fiscal cliff is already hurting the u.s. economy, undermining consumer confidence and delaying job-creating business
7:03am
investment. and he said there's nothing the fed can do to prevent a recession if there's not a deal here in washington. but this morning, like so many mornings before it, has not provoked either side to come closer to a deal. days of strategic silence descended wednesday into partisan frustration over the seemingly end its stalemate. house speaker john boehner on president obama. >> his plan does not fulfill his promise to bring a balanced approach to solving this problem. it's mainly tax hikes. and his plan does not begin to solve our debt crisis. it actually increases spending. >> and here's white house spokesman jay carney's dismiss i've assessment of boehner's proposal to permanently extend all income tax rates until they're replaced next year under a redrawn tax code with fewer loopholes and deductions. >> those magic beans are just beans and that fairy dust is just dust. it is not serious. and the president will not sign an extension of the bush tax cuts for the wealthiest.
7:04am
>> reporter: the top house democrat accused republicans of delaying a tax cut for middle class americans while trying to preserve one for the wealthiest 2% of income earners. >> it's getting really stale. it's getting really old. and the closer we get to christmas, it's really getting boring. >> reporter: the white house released this photo of president obama talking tuesday to boehner. it doesn't look heated, but the conversation was. obama told boehner his bid on taxes was unacceptable and not to expect a counteroffer. >> the president and i had a deliberate call yesterday, and we spoke honestly and openly about the differences that we face. >> reporter: outside of washington, pressure for a deal intensified. jamie dimon, head of america's largest bank bias sets, jpmorgan chase, and a big wall street player, said lawmakers have to see the bigger picture. >> they know all the cards right now. you can lay them out, you can debate them all day long. everyone knows what they are. now they have got to go decide. if they go decide now, you might
7:05am
have a booming economy in a couple months. >> reporter: one part of the fiscal cliff drama is across-the-board government spending cuts. today every member of the house received a letter ordering them to impose 11% across the board cuts to their own budget. john boehner will meet with reporters in a couple of hours and president obama will do some interviews with stations across the country. >> also in washington is republican senator jim demint of south carolina. senator, good morning. >> good morning, charlie. >> senator, what do you think is going to happen? >> i wish i knew. most of us here are not in the loop of what they're discussing. but i do know this, that this government doesn't need more money, this country needs less government. to take more money out of the real economy and give it to politicians and bureaucrats, no matter who you take it from, is not going to help the middle class or anyone else. the president's proposal clearly is not a plan, it's not a solution. it will fund the government for
7:06am
a few days. we all realize it's a political trophy, it's not a solution. but the president has been campaigning against these tax rates for a long time, and he will probably eventually get his tax increases one way or another. >> so if he will get them, why not get them now and compromise and avoid going off the fiscal cliff? >> well, we should have done it before the election. we should not h wrap ould not h home until the problem was solved and people could see how we had actually handled it here so they would know how to vote in the election. but i've been a businessman most of my life and i know the damage from this uncertainty has already been done. you combine that with the implementation of obamacare and those taxes, i think you're already going to see some downturn in our economy because of what's been going on here. we can't fix it christmas eve and expect it all to bounce back in january. >> but, senator, you're talking about the damage that's been
7:07am
done. you released a statement saying this is not rocket science. with that in mind, why can't we come to terms? you know, the public is viewing the republican party very negatively. are you concerned about that? >> well, i'm not so much concerned about the parties. i think both parties have failed our country. and i know what the american public has been told. the president campaigned on raising taxes and getting rid of the bush era tax cuts. and he's going to get his wish, i believe. we're going to be raising taxes not just on the top earners, everyone will pay more taxes next year in this country. i think that's what the president wants. but we've doubled the size of this government and doubled spending over the last ten years. this year tax revenues at current tax rates will probably be at historic highs. if you look at the facts, we don't need more revenue, we just need to stop the spending. the president is not going to stop spending -- >> senator --
7:08am
>> -- he's proposed more spending. so it's hard to work with someone who i think is intentionally trying to take us over this cliff. >> senator, you've announced you're going to leave the senate and go to a think tank to make the case for conservatism in america. why are you doing that? >> well, i can see conservative ideas working all over the country. a number of states are implementing conservative ideas. their economies are turning around, jobs are being created. but we have not done a good enough job of convincing americans that less government, less taxes, and a more vibrant economy is really going to work for every american. so i spent most of my life in advertising and marketing and research, and i want to go back to the battle of ideas. i just think unless we win the hearts and minds of the american people, we're not going to win elections with conservative ideas. so we've got a lot of work to do and the heritage foundation is the most prominent, preeminent conservative think tank in this country so it's a great
7:09am
opportunity to change the debate. >> senator, thank you very much. >> thank you. the federal reserve did something yesterday that it has never done before. it is linking interest rates to unemployment. in other words, interest rates will not go up unless the jobless rate goes down. rebecca jarvis is here. rebecca? >> reporter: good morning. >> go ahead. >> reporter: well, i was going to say, charlie, ultimately what they're trying to do with this is to discourage people from saving and to get them borrowing and borrowing cheaply. the federal reserve wants to stimulate the unemployment. they want to get more jobs created in this country. there aren't that many ways to do it and they have tried multiple ways. this is a new thing, a change in their policy, and they're trying with everything that they have at their disposal to get companies hiring in this country. >> so what do you think it means for consumers? what do you think it means for businesses? >> consumers are going to get cheaper loans. same for businesses. ultimately if those cheaper loans go towards buying things that create jobs, then businesses will start hiring. but if you're a saver in this
7:10am
country, you will continue to get paid nothing to keep your money in the bank. that's my design. they want you spending that money. >> why is it they are doing this now? >> they are doing this now because unemployment has been stubbornly high for some time. and we talked about this before, charlie. they have changed by design their platform. they have a dual mandate to look at unemployment as well as inflation in this country. they have taken all of their focus and put it on the unemployment picture in this country because of how stubbornly how it's remained. they're saying we're willing to let prices rise a little more than we're generally comfortable with to get more people in this country jobs. >> rebecca jarvis, thanks. software developer john mcafee has returned to the united states. the multimillionaire, as you know, was on the run for weeks in central america, wanted for questioning in the murder of a fellow american. bob orr is in washington with the latest on the story. >> reporter: good morning, gayle and charlie. software security guru john
7:11am
mcafee is in miami this morning. at the moment, he's still not charged with any crime but his legal troubles and odyssey may not be over. >> it was a very tricky negotiation getting out of guatemala. >> immediately after arriving in miami, john mcafee was caught on camera outside his south beach hotel, where he addressed the k accusations against him. >> let me be clear. i have absolutely nothing to do, absolutely nothing, with the murder in belize. >> reporter: shortly before a new message and on his website. i have no phone, no money, no contact information, he wrote. it continued. ten agents whisked me to a safe place, asked me some questions and then said where would you like to go? that post came down almost immediately and was replaced with a request to, quote, respect his privacy. hours earlier before leaving guatemala, mcafee stopped to talk with reporters. >> going to miami. going home. >> reporter: as police escorted him to the airport, where he was
7:12am
deported to the united states. >> i think my next step is to rest. i have been -- i've been running through jungles and rivers and oceans, and i think i need to rest for a while. >> reporter: mcafee spent the last week being held in guatemala, where authorities caught up with him after three weeks on the run. >> john, where are you going? >> to jail. >> reporter: mcafee, who had been traveling with reporters from vice.com is wanted for questioning by police in belize, who are investigating the murder of mcafee's neighbor, and fellow american, gregory faull. faull was found dead of a gunshot wound to the head one month ago. he and mcafee had been feud, faull complaining about mcafee's dogs and complaining that mcafee's guards trespassed on his property. but mcafee, who made millions developing anti-virus software products, has repeatedly denied any involvement in faull's killing. he claims he only ran from belize because he feared he'd be killed if he turned himself in.
7:13am
>> at that point i decided i had to do something. went undercover. i am now here and i'm going to speak out and i'm going to speak out big-time. >> reporter: now, if mcafee is ever charged with the killing, he could ultimately be sent back to belize. but sources say it's also possible that the fbi might be interested in pursuing its own case here since the murder victim in belize was an american citizen. rock music's a-list gathered here in new york for a once in a lifetime concert to benefit victims of hurricane sandy. last night's 12-12-12 concert ran so long it became the 12-13-12 concert. jeff glor is here with the highlights. jeff, good morning. >> reporter: charlie, good morning touchlt it seemed like everything about the night was big. the length of the concert, nearly six hours. the list of performers, 17. promoters are hoping the biggest number of all is the amount of money raised. >> this has got to be the largest collection of old english musicians ever in mad 17 square garden.
7:14am

7:16am
>> reporter: most of it was serious, although there were moments of humor. >> this may be the greatest hannukah show ever. >> i know you really wanted one direction, but it's way past their bedtime. so that's why you get -- >> reporter: the who changed the lyrics of "teenage wasteland" to "sandy wasteland." and adam sandler sang his own unique version of this benefit concert standard. ♪ hallelujah, hallelujah, sandy, screw ya, screw ya ♪ ♪ we'll get through ya, because we're new yorkers ♪ >> reporter: from start to finish, the 12-12-12 concert lasted five hours and 50 minutes, a night and a lineup
7:17am
that might only be possible in one place. >> what an evening. >> good songs. >> you were there. >> i was there, yes. >> your best moment? >> well, there was such -- with 17 performers, it's almost impossible to name. i think the big thing to keep in mind is while the people up on stage have the resources to build, a lot of the people watching at home don't. and so i think that's maybe the number one takeaway when we think about this concert last night or moving forward. >> charlie, it started with bruce springsteen joined by jon bon jovi and just went up from there. but to me some of the most touching moments were the tru tributes to the first responders and the people who suffered in hurricane sandy. stephen colbert said it best. it's like brotherhood and

[ male announcer ] bob has afib: atrial fibrillation not caused by a heart valve problem, a condition that puts him at greater risk for a stroke. [ gps ] turn left. i don't think so. [ male announcer ] for years, bob took warfarin, and made a monthly trip to the clinic to get his blood tested. but not anymore. bob's doctor recommended a different option: once-a-day xarelto®. xarelto® is the first and only once-a-day prescription blood thinner for patients with afib not caused by a heart valve problem, that doesn't require routine blood monitoring.
7:37am
like warfarin, xarelto® is proven effective to reduce the risk of an afib-related stroke. there is limited data on how these drugs compare when warfarin is well managed. no routine blood monitoring means bob can spend his extra time however he likes. new zealand! xarelto® is just one pill a day, taken with the evening meal. and with no dietary restrictions, bob can eat the healthy foods he likes. do not stop taking xarelto® rivaroxaban without talking to the doctor who prescribes it for you. stopping may increase your risk of having a stroke. get medical help right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of bleeding, like unusual bruising or tingling. you may have a higher risk of bleeding if you take xarelto® with aspirin products, nsaids or blood thinners. talk to your doctor before taking xarelto® if you currently have abnormal bleeding. xarelto® can cause bleeding, which can be serious, and rarely may lead to death. you are likely to bruise more easily on xarelto®, and it may take longer for bleeding to stop.
7:38am
tell your doctors you are taking xarelto® before any planned medical or dental procedures. before starting xarelto®, tell your doctor about any conditions, such as kidney, liver or bleeding problems. ready to change your routine? ask your doctor about once-a-day xarelto®. for more information including cost support options, call 1-888-xarelto or visit goxarelto.com. but kissing is at an all-time high! i want answers! oh. right. kay.

senate. i love any job that has recess. advances in genetic testing allow parents to find out children's risk factors for disease, but should they? this week "time magazine's" cover story looks at the pros and cons. jeff kluger is the senior editor. >> welcome. >> thank you. >> what is the reason that parents should have genetic testing for their kids? >> well, genetic testing, this piece was written by bonnie rockman, one of our terrific reporters who got deeply into this. the fact is we are now at the point at which we can intervene at the very beginning of these disease processes. we can learn sometimes decades before a disease may express itself if somebody has a predisposition to it. the problem is information can sometimes be excess information if you don't have anything that you can do with that information. we can test reliably for 2500
8:18am
different diseases, but there are treatments for only 500 of them. >> so is it worth doing the testing? >> well, it's worth doing the testing if there are either cures or early interventions. if, for example, you find out your child has a predisposition to macular degeneration, he or she may never develop the disease, but there's no harm in making sure they wear sunglasses when they go out. similarly, a predisposition to alzheimer's, we know that concussion-related injuries can exacerbate alzheimer's. so maybe no pop warner football for your 7-year-old boy. >> who can get the test, how much does it cost, and how do you do it? >> well, there are a number of ways to do it. when the genome was first sequenced back in 2003 it cost $2.7 billion to do it. none of us are going to do that. >> super computer. >> super computer. whole genome sequencing is down to $7500 per person. >> not exactly affordable. >> exactly. but we do also have commercial
8:19am
tests, 23 and me, for $99 can test for 200 different traits. the problem is as we were saying before we went on some of those traits are whether you have dry or wet ear wax. well, you can use a q-tip for that. >> i know children, not people, who do not want to know if, in fact, there are certain diseases that they have a genetic predisposition to. >> right. >> like alts. >> like alzheimer's. the reason is, with a lot of these diseases there are either no interventions or minimal interventions. it is true. if you knew that you had a predisposition to huntington's, say, or als, there is nothing you can do about that except die in as little discomfort as possible. do you want that shadow happening over you until you're 50 and the disease finally hits or wouldn't you rather live a full, happy life and then at 50 learn its truth? >> on the break going to you we took a shot of you and two
8:20am
children. i'm assuming they're yours. >> they are both my daughters, yes. >> if they're not, what's the story with that. >> exactly. >> is genetic testing something you think is a good idea? what are you saying? >> i think it's a good idea when we are equipped to do it well. i -- my children haven't been genetically tested and i wouldn't do it. >> you would not? >> i would not do it because it would cause more worry. that worry does more things. it affects your quality of life and it can cause you to subject yourself or your kids to expensive and often painful medical tests that won't yield anything. >> what are the challenges for doctors? >> the biggest one is the ethical one. what you tell. two of the stories bonnie came up with in this piece was on the one hand doctors who determined that a little girl had a high risk of a -- an incure rabl neurogenetic disease that would hit at age 40. they chose not to tell the parents because they believe that this would inhibit their ability to get insurance.
8:21am
on the other hand, there was another child who had a risk of very early onset colon polyps which can become malignant as early as age 7. in this case you dotel them because there's something you can do. >> what are doctors required to tell? >> that's a gray area they're required fundamentally to abide by the hippocratic oath, do no harm. will this help or will this hurt? various professional groups are now implementing guidelines, both the obstetrician's group and the american pediatric association say for the time being no genetic testing for kids. >> have you been tested? >> i have not been tested, no. i already know my ear wax status. >> and how is it? >> it's just fine. >> no, but this is the thing, when you think about genetic testing for many people it poses emotional dilemmas, ethical dilemmas. i often wonder is it a case of too much information. is it a good thing?
8:22am
>> that is not always a good thing. we see this with medical students. they call it the merck manual syndrome. they begin to read the merck manual, they think they have every disease in the world. that's why a lot of us are warned to stay off the internet. don't start reading about them. >> got it. if you ever thought you were [ laughter ] [ girl ] wow, you guys have it easy.

♪ ♪ i knew you were trouble when you walked in ♪ welcome to "cbs this morning" and happy birthday to you, taylor swift. the multiie grammy winner is 23 today. airline fees have been bugging passengers for years, and now hotels are playing to that game as well. >> the federal trade commission recently sent a letter warning hotel operators about hidden fees. cbs news travel editor peter greenberg is here. welcome. >> yeah, it's the nickel-and-dime game all over again. it's called drip pricing,
8:30am
another way of looking at nickel-and-diming. you check into a hotel, what do they ask you for? you know what the room rate is. they ask for a swipe of the credit card, then you go to your room, and then of course, you go to check out. what's on the bill they don't disclose? just about everything. take a look at this bill a friend of mine shared with me from a hilton hotel. they check out. they know what the room rate is, but now look, a mandatory tip for a bellman, $5, energy surcharge $12, a resort fee of almost $16. so, all of a sudden, $30 to $40 more than they bargained for, and it was never disclosed. >> even though you may have already tipped the bellman, peter. >> exactly. then ask if the bellman even gets that mandatory tip -- >> does the bellman get that mandatory tip? >> no, i asked. >> so, what does the federal trade commission do about this? >> well, they sent a letter to 22 hotels, which they have not named, and this is what they said in the letter -- "we believe that online hotel
8:31am
reservation sites should include in the quoted total price any unavoidable and mandatory fees, such as resort fees, that consumers will be charged to stay at the hotel." in the case of the ftc, they're basically focusing on the website. it's more than just the website. i called seven hotels yesterday and asked them to quote me the room rate. everybody did. not one of them quoted any of those other fees that they would have then added on when you're walking out of the hotel. >> and if you had them about it, what would they have said? >> well, if you ask about it and they disclose it and then you agree to it, then you're stuck with it. >> why aren't they naming the hotels? >> the reason, according to the ftc, is they want to give these guys a chance to comply before the ftc takes further action. the ftc has never made a statement on this yet, they've never taken a position. this is the first time they've done it. they're basically saying, okay, guys, we're aware of it, we know you're doing it, we're letting you know we know you're doing it, so get your act together. >> what would a peter greenberg do? >> well, the first thing you have to do is understand that the game here is, most people when they check out of a

hotel -- [ laughter ] what are you laughing about? >> because some people who shall remain anonymous, chris lick said peter greenberg would not be paying for the room. >> okay. >> it's a good question. so, what -- because people save and save to go on vacation and then they get there, and what do they do? >> most people when they're leaving the hotel are late for something, they're racing around the hotel and don't look at their bill. they don't look at their bill. >> yes, guilty. >> plus remember, you're giving them your credit card when you get checked in, so your assumption is they're billing the credit card and you get home and see what it is. so the night before you check out, go to the front desk and ask for a copy of your bill the night before you check out. that's when you dispute the charges. >> what if you want to say before you check in, i'm not paying extra fees and don't put it on my bill? >> if you say that before you check in, then the choice for the hotel is to say don't come. but the key here is disclosure and transparency. if they don't disclose, you have a right to basically dispute the bill. if they do disclose and you give them the credit card, you're stuck with it.
8:33am
>> do you find most times if you dispute the bill, the consumer wins? i have done tourism assessment. i didn't notice it until i got home because i'm always rushing, always late. if i would have challenged it, do you think it would have been taken off? >> yes. in fact, most hotels will do that because they want to keep you coming back. >> what are the words i need to say? >> hi, i'm gayle king. no, no, but actually -- >> what are the words? >> hi, i'm gayle king. >> the thing is, look, you didn't disclose this, this is not fair. under the federal credit laws, you have a right to dispute any charge to which you weren't disclosed for a service you didn't receive. you called it a tourism assessment fee -- >> that's what they called it. >> forget that. how about this, they call it a hospitality fee. hospitable. >> i want to get to one thing before you go. because you are known and because you know these things, are you treated like a high roller in vegas when you walk in? >> is this another chris lit question? >> no, of course it isn't. i don't take chris litt

nominations were announced. >> i think among movies, "lincoln" and "the master" and 30" are locks for the nomination. >> "the master"? >> that was -- >> that was tough for me. >> you and a lot of people. and i think "argo" as well, ben affleck's movie has a good shot of many nominations. and in tv, it's going to be kind of exciting because you have people like bryan cranston and jon hamm, and we found out just before we went on the air they announced some of the nominations, and the host of the show this year, amy poehler and tina fey, are both nominated all right. >> yay. >> so that's really nice. >> this is tina fey's last season on "30 rock." >> that's right. and i think they're great choices as host as well. i think after a couple golden globe ceremonies with ricky gervais doing his aren't we naughty boys -- >> sorry we have to cut you off because we have to live to

best motion picture drama, "argo," "django unchained," "life of pi," "lincoln," "zero dark thirty." >> congratulations to all our nominees and to all the producers of this year's movies and television. >> so, ken, surprised? >> well, i was certainly wrong about "the master," but on the other hand, "lincoln" and "zero dark thirty" got a lot of nominations. it's a very good year for maggie smith, who got nominated both in the tv category for "down in abbey aid and for the movie category for "the quartet." so great for her. >> and snubs? >> snubs? i thought "beast of the southern wild" might have gotten a nomination. >> a lot of people liked that. >> i thought "flight" would have gotten more nominations with denzel washington, but "django
8:44am
unchained" -- >> quintin tarantino. >> got a lot of nominations. >> but jaimo fox, the lead character, was not is that considered -- he is django. >> yeah. it could be considered snubbed, but when you look at the nominations of daniel day-lewis, joaquin phoenix, john hawkes, richard gere, it's a very impressive list. i think that just looking at tv, jeff daniels, to get a nomination for "the newsroom" in its first season is a very, very good thing, and bryan cranston, jon hamm, damien lewis, that's a real murderers row of actors in television. >> no surprise in that category, too, is it, on any of those? >> no. >> is anyone likely to walk away with the nomination? for example, "lincoln" and daniel day-lewis as best actor. >> i think, yes. i think that hollywood loves, especially the hollywood foreign press, loves that kind of great, sweeping, historical movie. and when you combine the fact that it's tony kushner supplying
8:45am
the script and it's spielberg. it's really an extraordinary achievement internationally. it's one of those movies -- you'd think "lincoln's" an american movie, but it's an international phenomenon. >> best actress in a motion picture? >> i think that seeing rachel weisz in "deep blue sea," a movie not many people saw, that was a great surprise. jessica chastane in "zero dark thirty" was someone everybody really expected to see nominated. and helen mirren in "hitchcock," a movie that didn't get particularly good reviews, but boy, what a perfect performance she gave in that. >> is it a pleasant surprise to see "salmon fishing in the yemen"? that was a good movie, but it didn't do well at the box office, but a very sweet movie. >> yes, well, this is -- >> it got a lot of nominations. >> yeah, this is where the hollywood foreign press in dividing movies into drama and musical comedy works in the favor of smaller movies, because there are more movies that can be nominated.
8:46am
so, it's a much more diverse list than you'll see in the oscar nominations. >> were you surprised by ang lee? >> not at all. i think "life of pi," i expected actually to get a best picture nomination, and i think he got a lot of praise for that movie. i think it's a difficult movie in terms of having to film that visually and translate a best-selling book in that way, so i think ang lee deserves that nomination. >> which of these movies is harvey weinstein's movie? >> well, you know, he's going to be pushing for "lincoln," for sure. >> sure. >> and you know, i just think that it's going to be -- it's going to come down to a lot of "zero dark thirty"/"lincoln" kind of contest in a lot of ways. >> if that happens, will they cancel each other out in some cases? >> in some cases -- >> it might slide through, like. >> it could be "argo" could sneak through, but i think in general, those are going to be the two big titans, ones you see going head to head in this. >> what do you give ben affleck's chances? "lincoln" leads and then "argo."
8:47am
i'm happy for ben affleck being nominated for best actor. >> i think it had the disadvantage of opening earlier in the year. "lincoln" is fresher in people's minds. >> "les mis," tom hooper was the academy award winner last time. >> yeah. >> did not get nominated and he took some real risk here. >> yes. "les mis," as ed helms kept saying. >> yes. >> had a very good showing, and i think that's really a movie people are going to see during the christmas season, it's going to pick up a lot of momentum, so i think it could win quite a few awards, again -- >> but not best director. >> but not best director, no. but in terms of the golden globes, that doesn't necessarily track if you're looking ahead to the oscars. he could very well be nominated for director in that category. >> how much effect do the golden globes have on future nominations? by future, i mean oscar nominations. >> well, the golden globes -- oscar nominations will come out
8:48am
before the golden globes winners are announced. >> that's different. isn't that different this year? >> that's right. everything's sort of pushed forward, this locomotive train towards the awards season. everything builds towards the oscars, so i think the oscar committee tries to distance themselves and say, you know, we're not influenced by that, but of course they are. so, when they see all these nominations for "lincoln" and "zero dark thirty," they're going to respond to that. >> a lot of good choices. thank you, ken tucker. >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. you're watching "cbs this morning." >> thank you. >> we'll be right back. you're watching "cbs this morning." ,,,,,,,,,,,,,,
